We paid less than Rs. 100 for 1 portion each of the two dishes
I rate all the food items & then give a final overall rating which is a simple average of the individual item ratings. What the ratings stand for: 5 = Excellent, 4 = Very Good, 3 = Good, 2 = Fair, 1 = Disaster.
The tiny shop is actually the place below a staircase. The shop does not have a signboard & I got to know the name after I asked the name of the shop.
One person sat inside and was wrapping the minced meat around sheekhs / piercing the marinated meat & attaching them to the sheekh.
A boy who stood outside on a road with a sigri was busy ensuring the heat was optimum.
The shop served two kinds of kababs – a kabab made from marinated meat chunks (tikka) & a sheekh kabab.
The Tikka was very good. It looked dry from outside but the looks were deceptive. It was chewy & soft, had burnt edges. It was was smokey, juicy, robust, rustic & flavorful. It had a bit of above-optimum salt in it.
If I ignore the salt thing, the kabab’s rating wud b 4.5/5. With the anomaly the rating gets revised to 4/5.
We also tried the Sheek kabab. It was not made from machine minced smooth paste. Hence there were little uneven Chunks in the mince.
The kabab was juicy, robust, YUMM , rustic & flavorful. Flavor of meat was above all – spices did not make their presence felt that much.
Rate it 4.25/5.
Overall rating of food at Kaale Baba averages out to 4.12/5. I wud not leave any opportunity to eat out here. What’s going on in ur mind?
